Toys without obligatory marking and information are still in the market

(Partial report of 3rd quarter 2014)

(Prague, December 15, 2014) CTIA surveillance concerning toys continued in the 3rd quarter of 2014. Almost 300 inspections dealt with both fulfilment of information obligations stipulated in the Act on technical Requirements for Products and applicable implementing regulations, and safety of particular types of toys that were collected most frequently based on consumers’ notifications. “Inspection results are not very encouraging for consumers. Our inspectors found out that up to 60% of distributors don’t care so much about fulfilment of information obligations and obligatory identification of toys. Prohibitions of sale were imposed on 2,424 pieces of toys amounting to 130,682 CZK that failed conditions for being placed on the market in the monitored period. At the same time, 163 fines amounting to 2.8 million CZK came into force in the same period,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the CTIA.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
